Book Review: Shattered by Dani Pettrey

About the Book: With All the Evidence Against Him, Only a Sister's Trust Can Save Him Now
When her prodigal brother Reef's return to Yancey, Alaska, is shattered by his arrest for murder, Piper McKenna is determined to protect him.
Deputy Landon Grainger loves the McKennas like family, but he's also sworn to find the truth. And he knows those closest to you have the power to deceive you the most. With his sheriff pushing for a quick conviction, some unexpected leads complicate the investigation, and pursuing the truth puts Landon's career in jeopardy.
When Piper launches her own investigation, Landon realizes he must protect her from herself-and whatever complications await as the two follow clues deep into Canada's rugged backcountry. Not only does their long friendship seem to be turning into something more, but this dangerous case is becoming deadlier with each step. 

My Thoughts:  I loved this book!  I loved the Alaskan setting (would love to go there on a cruise someday), I loved that the book also took us into BC and California to mix it up a bit.  I loved the main characters and how well developed the minor characters were.  I loved how Landon and Piper gradually recognize their feelings for each other and begin to explore their relationship.  I loved the mystery storyline and how that all played out (and that I hadn't figured it out half way through).

This was the 2nd book in a series but I haven't read the first.  There were times when I noticed that this was a 2nd book and I had obviously missed some assumed details, but it wasn't really necessary and didn't take away from the story.  Pretty sure Kayden (Piper's sister) and Jake are going to be the main character's in the next book of the series.

Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for organizing this tour and providing me with my complimentary review copy.
